How can Chiropractic Care Help Me as an Athlete?
Chiropractic can give your athletic endeavors an edge. That’s why you’ll find chiropractors as team doctors for professional, college, and high school teams for sports ranging from wrestling and track to dance and gymnastics. Chiropractic has been used by champions like Lance Armstrong of cycling as well as Martina Navratilova and Jon McEnroe of tennis, and Arnold Schwarzenegger of Body Building. Emmitt Smith, the NFL’s all time rushing yardage record holder had a chiropractor for much of his career and attests that regular chiropractic care was an important part of his success!
Many amateur and professional athletes wouldn’t dream of competing without getting a chiropractic spinal check-up. That’s why 75 percent of the San Francisco 49ers received chiropractic care the day they played and won the 1990 super bowl and that’s why 16 chiropractors were present at the last Olympics. How about you? Want that winning edge, a little more balance, a littler more lightness to your step? Try a chiropractic “shaping up” adjustment of the spine.
Sports injuries nearly always jar and cause misalignment of the spinal column. A blow the the ribs, legs, feet, head, shoulder, or torso will always radiate to the center of the body. That’s why a chiropractic check-up is needed when you are injured, regardless of the nature of the injury. Medical doctors are simply not trained to located and correct spinal nerve stress — that is the realm of the doctor of chiropractic.
Before deciding whether to undergo surgery, if at all possible, it’s best to explore chiropractic and natural methods. As superstar Joe Montana stated “If only I had tried chiropractic care a few years earlier then maybe this surgery would have never happened!” Evander Holyfield echoes this attitude of many world famous athletes stating, “Once i drove over 20 miles to see a chiropractor before a fight. I have to have my adjustment before I go in to the ring.” How about you?
